FIELD OF THE DISCLOSURE

The present invention disclosure relates to content management, and in particular, a system and method for integrating disparate content repositories.

BACKGROUND

Content repositories manage and provide access to large data stores such as a newspaper archives, advertisements, inventories, image collections, etc. A content repository can be a key component of a Web application such as a Web portal, which must quickly serve up different types of content in response to a particular user's requests. However, difficulties can arise when trying to integrate more than one vendor's content repository. Each may have its own proprietary application program interface (API), conventions for manipulating content, and data formats. Performing a search across different repositories, for example, could require using completely different search mechanisms and converting each repository's search results into a common format. Furthermore, each time a repository is added to an application, the application software must be modified to accommodate these differences.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

The invention is illustrated by way of example and not by way of limitation in the figures of the accompanying drawings in which like references indicate similar elements. It should be noted that references to “an” or “one” embodiment in this disclosure are not necessarily to the same embodiment, and such references mean at least one.

In the following description, various aspects of the present invention will be described. However, it will be apparent to those skilled in the art that the present invention may be practiced with only some or all aspects of the present invention. For purposes of explanation, specific numbers, materials and configurations are set forth in order to provide a thorough understanding of the present invention. However, it will be apparent to one skilled in the art that the present invention may be practiced without the specific details. In other instances, well-known features are omitted or simplified in order not to obscure the present invention.

Parts of the description will be presented in data processing terms, such as data, selection, retrieval, generation, and so forth, consistent with the manner commonly employed by those skilled in the art to convey the substance of their work to others skilled in the art. As well understood by those skilled in the art, these quantities take the form of electrical, magnetic, or optical signals capable of being stored, transferred, combined, and otherwise manipulated through electrical and/or optical components of a processor and its subsystems.

Various operations will be described as multiple discrete steps in turn, in a manner that is most helpful in understanding the present invention, however, the order of description should not be construed as to imply that these operations are necessarily order dependent. In particular, these operations need not be performed in the order of presentation.

Various embodiments will be illustrated in terms of exemplary classes and/or objects in an object-oriented programming paradigm. It will be apparent to one skilled in the art that the present invention can be practiced using any number of different classes/objects, not merely those included here for illustrative purposes. Furthermore, it will also be apparent that the present invention is not limited to any particular software programming language or programming paradigm.

FIG. 1 is an illustration of a virtual content management framework in one embodiment of the invention. A content repository 108 is a searchable data store. Such systems can relate structured content and unstructured content (e.g., digitally scanned paper documents, eXtensible Markup Language, Portable Document Format, Hypertext Markup Language, electronic mail, images, video and audio streams, raw binary data, etc.) into a searchable corpus. Content repositories can be coupled to or integrated with content management systems. Content management systems provide for content life cycle management (e.g. versioning), content review and approval, automatic content classification, event-driven content processing, process tracking and content delivery to other systems. For example, if a user fills out a loan application on a web portal, the web portal can forward the application to a content repository which, in turn, can contact a bank system, receive notification of loan approval, update the loan application in the repository and notify the user by rendering the approval information in a format appropriate for the web portal.

A virtual or federated content repository (hereinafter referred to as “VCR”) 100 is a logical representation of one or more individual content repositories 108 such that they appear and behave as a single content repository from an application program's standpoint. This is accomplished in part by use of an API (application program interface) 104 and an SPI (service provider interface) 102. An API describes how an application program, library or process can interface with some program logic or functionality. By way of a non-limiting illustration, a process can include a thread, a server, a servlet, a portlet, a distributed object, a web browser, or a lightweight process. An SPI describes how a service provider (e.g., a content repository) can be integrated into a system of some kind. SPI's are typically specified as a collection of classes/interfaces, data structures and functions that work together to provided a programmatic means through which a service can be accessed and utilized. By way of a non-limiting example, APIs and SPIs can be specified in an object-oriented programming language, such as Java™ (available from Sun Microsystems, Inc. of Mountain View, Calif.) and C# (available from Microsoft Corp. of Redmond, Wash.). The API and SPI can be exposed in a number of ways, including but not limited to static libraries, dynamic link libraries, distributed objects, servers, class/interface instances, etc.

In one embodiment, the API presents a unified view of all repositories to application programs and enables them to navigate, perform CRUD (create, read, update, and delete) operations, and search across multiple content repositories as though they were a single repository. Content repositories that implement the SPI can “plug into” the VCR. The SPI includes a set of interfaces and services that repositories can implement and extend including schema management, hierarchy operations and CRUD operations. The API and SPI share a content model 106 that represents the combined content of all repositories 108 as a hierarchical namespace of nodes (or hierarchy). Given a node N, nodes that are hierarchically inferior to N are referred to as children of N whereas nodes that are hierarchically superior to N are referred to as parents of N. The top-most level of the hierarchy is called the federated root. There is no limit to the depth of the hierarchy.

In one embodiment, content repositories can be children of the federated root. Each content repository can have child nodes. Nodes can represent hierarchy information or content. Hierarchy nodes serve as a container for other nodes in the hierarchy akin to a file subdirectory in a hierarchical file system. Content nodes can have properties. In one embodiment, a property associates a name with a value of some kind. By way of a non-limiting illustration, a value can be a text string, a number, an image, an audio/visual presentation, binary data, etc. Either type of node can have a schema associated with it. A schema describes the data type of one or more of a node's properties.

FIG. 2 is an illustration of functional layers in one embodiment of the invention. API 200 is layered on top of SPI 202. The SPI layer isolates direct interaction with repositories 212 from the API. In one embodiment, this can be accomplished at run-time wherein the API library dynamically links to or loads the SPI library. In another embodiment, the SPI can be part of a server process such that the API and the SPI can communicate over a network. The SPI can communicate with the repositories using any number of means including, but not limited to, shared memory, remote procedure calls and/or via one or more intermediate server processes.

Referring again to FIG. 2 and by way of a non-limiting example, content mining facilities 204, portlets 206, tag libraries 208, applications 210, and other libraries 218 can all utilize the API to interact with a VCR. Content mining facilities can include services for automatically extracting content from the VCR based on parameters. Portlet and Java ServerPages™ tag libraries enable portals to interact with the VCR and surface its content on web pages. (Java ServerPages is available from Sun Microsystems, Inc.) In addition, application programs and other libraries can be built on top of the API.

In one embodiment, the API can include optimizations to improve the performance of interacting with the VCR. One or more content caches 216 can be used to buffer search results and recently accessed nodes. Content caches can include node caches and binary caches. A node cache can be used to provide fast access to recently accessed nodes. A binary cache can be used to provide fast access to the data associated with each node in a node cache. The API can also provide a configuration facility 214 to enable applications, tools and libraries to configure content caches and the VCR. In one embodiment, this facility can be implemented as a Java Management Extension (available from Sun Microsystems, Inc.). Exemplary configuration parameters are provided in Table 1.

TABLE 1
Exemplary Configuration Parameters
CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS
Active state for a binary cache of a repository (i.e., turn the
cache on or off).
Maximum number of entries for a binary cache of a repository.
Time-to-live for entries in a binary cache of a repository.
Repository name.
Active state for a node cache of a repository (i.e., turn the
cache on or off).
Max entries for a node cache of a repository.
Time-to-live for entries in a node cache of a repository.
Password and username for a repository.
Read-only attribute for the repository.

FIG. 3 is an illustration of objects used in connecting a repository to a VCR in one embodiment of the invention. In one embodiment, objects implementing API interface RepositoryManager 302 can serve as an representation of a VCR from an application program's standpoint. A RepositoryManager connect( ) method attempts to connect all available repositories with a current user's credentials to the VCR. By way of a non-limiting example, credentials in one embodiment can based on the Java™ Authentication and Authorization Service (available from Sun Microsystems, Inc.). Those of skill in the art will recognize that many authorization schemes are possible without departing from the scope and spirit of the present embodiment. Each available content repository is represented by an SPI Repository object 306-310. The RepositoryManager object invokes a connect( ) method on a set of Repository objects. In one embodiment, a RepositorySession object (not shown) can be instantiated for each content repository to which a connection is attempted. In one embodiment, the RepositoryManager connect( ) method can return an array of the RepositiorySessions to the application program, one for each repository for which a connection was attempted. Any error in the connection procedure can be described by the RepositorySession object's state. In another embodiment, the RepositoryManager connect( ) method can connect to a specific repository using a current user's credentials and a given repository name. In one embodiment, the name of a repository can be a URI (uniform resource identifier).

FIG. 4 is an exemplary content model in one embodiment of the invention. The content model is shared between the API and the SPI. Each box in FIG. 2 represents a class or an interface. Hollow tipped arrows connecting boxes indicate inheritance relationships wherein the class/interface from which the arrows emanate inherit from the class/interface to which the arrows point. Solid tipped arrows indicate that the objects of the class/interface from which the arrows emanate can contain or have references (e.g., pointers or addresses) to objects of the class/interface to which the arrows point. In one embodiment, each object in a VCR has an identifier that uniquely identifies it. An identifier can be represented by an ID 400 (or id). An id can contain the name of a content repository and a unique id provided to it by the repository. In one embodiment, the id class/interface can be made available through a common super class/interface 414 that can provide services such as serialization, etc.

In one embodiment, content and hierarchy nodes can be represented by a Node 402 (or node). A node has a name, an id, and can also include a path that uniquely specifies an the node's location in the VCR hierarchy. By way of a non-limiting example, the path can be in a Unix-like directory path format such as ‘/a/b/c’ where ‘/’ is a federated root, ‘a’ is a repository, ‘b’ is a node in the ‘a’ repository, and ‘c’ is the node's name. The Node class provides methods by with a node's parent and children can be obtained. This is useful for applications and tools that need to traverse the VCR hierarchy (e.g., browsers). Nodes can be associated with zero or more Property 404 objects (or properties). A property can have a name and zero or more values 406. In one embodiment, a property's name is unique relative to the node to which the property is associated. A Value 406 can represent any value, including but not limited to binary, Boolean, date/time, floating point, integer or string values. If a property has more than one value associated with it, it is referred to as “multi-valued”.

A node's properties can be described by a schema. A schema can be referred to as “metadata” since it does not constitute the content (or “data”) of the VCR per se. Schemas can be represented by an ObjectClass 408 object and zero or more PropertyDefinition 410 objects. An ObjectClass has a schema name that uniquely identifies it within a content repository. A node can refer to a schema using the ObjectClass name. In another embodiment, a content node can define its own schema by referencing an ObjectClass object directly. In one embodiment, there is one PropertyDefinition object for each of a node's associated Property objects. PropertyDefinition objects define the shape or type of properties. Schemas can be utilized by repositories and tools that operate on VCRs, such as hierarchical browsers. By way of a non-limiting example, a hierarchy node's schema could be used to provide information regarding its children or could be used to enforce a schema on them. By way of a further non-limiting example, a VCR browser could use a content node's schema in order to properly display the node's values.

In one embodiment, a PropertyDefinition can have a name and can describe a corresponding property's data type (e.g., binary, Boolean, string, double, calendar, long, reference to an external data source, etc.), whether it is required, whether it is read-only, whether it provides a default value, and whether it specifies a property choice type. A property choice can indicate if a property is a single unrestricted value, a single restricted value, a multiple unrestricted value, or a multiple restricted value. Properties that are single have only one value whereas properties that are multiple can have more than one value. If a property is restricted, its value(s) are chosen from a finite set of values. But if a property is unrestricted, any value(s) can be provided for it. PropertyChoice objects 412 can be associated with a PropertyDefinition object to define a set of value choices in the case where the PropertyDefinition is restricted. A choice can be designated as a default value, but only one choice can be a default for a given PropertyDefinition.

A PropertyDefinition object may also be designated as a primary property. By way of a non-limiting example, when a schema is associated with a node, the primary property of a node can be considered its default content. The isPrimary( ) method of the PropertyDefinition class returns true if a PropertyDefinition object is the primary PropertyDefinition. By way of a further non-limiting example, if a node contained a binary property to hold an image, it could also contain a second binary property to represent a thumbnail view of the image. If the thumbnail view was the primary property, software applications such as browser could display it by default.

FIG. 5 is an exemplary service model in one embodiment of the invention. Each box in FIG. 5 represents a class or an interface. A dashed arrow indicates that the interface from which the arrow emanates can produce at run-time objects implementing the classes to which the arrow points. A content repository's implementation of the SPI is responsible for mapping operations on the content model to the particulars of a given content repository. Repository interface 500 represents a content repository and facilitates connecting to it. The Repository has a connect( ) method that returns an object of type Ticket 502 (or ticket) if a user is authenticated by the repository. In one embodiment, tickets are intended to be light-weight objects. As such, one or more may be created and possibly cached for each client/software application accessing a given repository.

A ticket can utilize a user's credentials to authorize a service. In one embodiment, a ticket can be the access point for the following service interfaces: NodeOps 508, ObjectClassOps 506, and SearchOps 510. An application program can obtain objects that are compatible with these interfaces through the API RepositoryManager class. The NodeOps interface provides CRUD methods for nodes in the VCR. Nodes can be operated on based on their id or through their path in the node hierarchy. Table 2 summarizes NodeOp class functionality exposed in the API.

FIG. 6 is an illustration of NopeOps service interaction in one embodiment of the invention. Application 600 utilizes a NodeOps object 602 provided by the API which in turn utilizes one or more NodeOps objects 606-610 provided by an SPI Ticket. Each repository 612-616 is represented by a NodeOps object. When the API NodeOps 602 receives a request to perform an action, it maps the request to one or more SPI NodeOps objects 606-610 which in turn fulfill the request using their associated repositories. In this way, applications and libraries utilizing the API see a the VCR rather than individual content repositories.

As with the NodeOps service, there is one SPI ObjectClassOps object per repository and a single API ObjectClassOps object. The API ObjectClassOps object maps requests to one or more SPI ObjectClassOps which in turn fulfill the requests using their respective repositories. Through this service, ObjectClass and PropertyDefinition objects can be operated on based on their id or through their path in the node hierarchy. Table 3 summarizes ObjectClassOps class functionality exposed in the API.

TABLE 3
ObjectClassOps Functionality
ObjectClassOps FUNCTIONALITY
Create an ObjectClass, create PropertyDefinition(s) and associate them
with the ObjectClass.

Retreive a PropertyDefinition.
Retrieve all PropertyDefinitions for the given ObjectClass.
Rename the given ObjectClass.
Updates the given PropertyDefinition.

As with the NodeOps and ObjectClassOps services, there is one SPI SearchOps object per repository and a single API SearchOps object. The API SearchOps object maps requests to one or more SPI SearchOps which in turn fulfill the requests using their respective repositories. Among other things, the SearchOps services allows applications and libraries to search for properties and/or values throughout the entire VCR. In one embodiment, searches can be conducted across all Property, Value, BinaryValue, ObjectClass, PropertyChoice and PropertyDefinitions objects in the VCR. Search expressions can include but are not limited to one or more logical expressions, Boolean operators, nested expressions, object names, function calls, mathematical functions, mathematical operators, string operators, image operators, and Structured Query Language (SQL). Table 4 summarizes SearchOps class functionality exposed in the API.

Updates a content cache's time-to-live attribute.

FIG. 7 is an illustration of a VCR browser in one embodiment of the invention. A VCR browser 700 can include one or more tools built atop the API and has a graphical user interface (GUI). In one embodiment, the browser can be rendered using Microsoft Windows® (available from Microsoft, Corp.). In yet another embodiment, the browser can be implemented as a web portal. Browser window 700 includes a navigation pane 702 and a context-sensitive editor window 704. The navigation pane displays a hierarchical representation of a VCR having one content repository (“BEA Repository”) which itself has four hierarchy nodes (“HR”, “Images”, “Marketing”, and “Products”). Selection of a hierarchy node can cause its children to be rendered beneath it in the navigation pane and cause an appropriate editor to be displayed in the editor window. Selection may be accomplished by any means, including but not limited to mouse or keyboard input, voice commands, physical gestures, etc. In this case, the VCR 706 is selected and a repository configuration editor is displayed in the editor window. The editor allows a user to change the configuration parameters (see Table 1) of the VCR. In one embodiment, configuration parameters are manipulated via Java Management Extensions (see FIG. 1).

FIG. 8 is an illustration of a content editor in one embodiment of the invention. Navigation pane 802 is in “content” mode 812 such that it selectively filters out nodes that define only schemas. Content node 806 (“Laptop”) has been selected. Node 806 is a child of hierarchy node “Products”, which itself is a child of repository “BEA Repository”. Selection of node 806 causes a corresponding content node editor to be rendered in editor window 804. The editor displays the current values for the selected node. The content type 814 indicates that the schema for this node is named “product”. In this example, the node has five properties: “Style”, “Description”, “Color”, “SKU” and “Image”. A user is allowed to change the value associated with these properties and update the VCR (via the update button 808), or remove the node from the VCR (via the remove button 810).

FIG. 9 is an illustration of a schema editor in one embodiment of the invention. Navigation pane 902 is in “type” mode 910 such that it only displays nodes that have schemas but no content. Schema node 906 (“product”) has been selected. Node 906 is a child of repository “BEA Repository”. Selection of node 906 causes a corresponding schema editor to be rendered in editor window 904. The editor displays the current schema for the selected node (e.g., derived from ObjectClass, PropertyDefinition, PropertyChoice objects). In this example, the node has five property definitions: “Style”, “Description”, “Color”, “SKU” and “Image”. For each property, the editor displays an indication of whether it is the primary property, its data type, its default value, and whether it is required. A property can be removed from a schema by selecting the property's delete button 912. A property can be added by selecting the “add property” button 908. A property's attributes can be changed by selecting its name 914 in the editor window or the navigation pane 906 (see FIG. 10).

FIG. 10 is an illustration of a property editor in one embodiment of the invention. The schema named “product” is being edited. Schema properties definitions are listed beneath their schema name in the navigation pane 1002. Schema property 1008 (“color”) has been selected. The editor window 1004 displays the property's current attributes. The name of the attribute (e.g., “color”), whether the attribute is required or not, whether it is read-only, whether it is the primary property, its data type, default value(s), and whether the property is single/multiple restricted/unrestricted can be modified. Changes to the a property's attributes can be saved by selecting the update button 1006.

One embodiment may be implemented using a conventional general purpose or a specialized digital computer or microprocessor(s) programmed according to the teachings of the present disclosure, as will be apparent to those skilled in the computer art. Appropriate software coding can readily be prepared by skilled programmers based on the teachings of the present disclosure, as will be apparent to those skilled in the software art. The invention may also be implemented by the preparation of integrated circuits or by interconnecting an appropriate network of conventional component circuits, as will be readily apparent to those skilled in the art.

One embodiment includes a computer program product which is a storage medium (media) having instructions stored thereon/in which can be used to program a computer to perform any of the features presented herein.
